Last year when Maserati revealed a plan to sell 50,000 units globally by 2015, it seemed like a pretty steep goal for an automaker that had sold just 6,300 units for the entire year. It turns out that goal may be a little on the conservative side. Through September, Automotive News Europe says the Italian automaker has already racked up 22,500 orders mainly on the backs of the redesigned Quattroporte and the all-new Ghibli, and there are still more new products in the pipeline.

Back in August, we heard that demand in China was playing a strong role in Maserati's big numbers in 2013, and this doesn't even include the upcoming Levante SUV, which Maserati CEO Harald Wester expects to add as many as 25,000 units to the mix when it goes on sale in 2015. According to the ANE report, the Quattroporte is still the most popular model with almost 10,000 orders so far this year, while the smaller and more affordable Ghibli is performing quite well with almost 8,000 orders; the aging, but soon-to-be-replaced, GranTurismo models have about 5,000 orders.

      More proof. Wake up America. The rich are getting richer and the poor poorer while the middle class shrinks to nothing. They manufactured the financial crisis and stole your money. Congrats on watching it happen.

      The new Ghibli has caught my interest, can't wait to see a few in person.

      Hopefully they haven't and don't comprimise on engine note. I would happily buy about anything that sounds like Maserati's have sounded for the last twenty years.

      Only reason I'd want one is to throw a plate on the back that says "Does 185"

      This bodes well for the new large Alfa Romeo sedan based on this platform.

      Ordered vs how many have been actually sold will be interesting to see at year end. The Ghibli is the one for me, especially when they put the V8 in it. M
